Stereospread puts a new face on the burgeoning indietronica scene, with one foot firmly in the synthtopian past and another in indie pop's future. Sara Snyder's lovely, timeless vocals evoke contemporary acts such as Electric Youth, Broods, Phantogram, or Chromatics, while occasionally rising in a fervor more reminiscent of Florence Welch. Meanwhile James Hopkins' shimmering synth arpeggiations, lavish pads, and undulating basslines paint a lush landscape of saturated electronic sound. James and Sara's songs overflow with love, loss, youth, nostalgia, happiness, sadness, and all of life's terrible beauty.

Stereospread has released two EPs and several singles, including the popular track "Frozen" on Daga Records. They have performed and worked with many extraordinary acts both local to the Asheville area and beyond. These include shows with the Walking Sticks, Jellyrox, Divine Love Mission, Sonen, oddStar, Sunpilots, Telekinetic Walrus, Frisky Monkey, ElectroChemical, and more at numerous venues and events, including Asheville's Electromusic Festival. Stereospread has collaborated with Ehron Von Allen, Thy Fearful Symmetry, Keats Handwriting, Jadugara, Alter Der Ruine, David Galas (Lycia), Adam Fielding and Ian Pickering (Sneaker Pimps), King George VIII, Sexbots, Ask You in Gray, Paul Vo (Vo Inventions), Haap, and many, many more projects from remixing to mastering. Stereospread tracks have been remixed by acts such as Assemblage 23, Killstarr, Sunglasses Kid, Occams Laser, Null Device, Some Desperate Glory, Venn Diagram, Kissing in Graveyards, Grant Who, Bobbi Style, and iioioioii.

Stereospread has artist relationships with Presonus, Moog, Dave Smith Instruments, Slate Digital, BBE Sound, Third Flood Sound, New Retro Wave, and Navi Retlav Studios. Their tracks have been played on numerous radio stations throughout the world. Upcoming Stereospread projects include a full length album, several remixes, and music for a feature film.
